The more interesting clothing stores

Clothes Shops, Shoe Shops, Fashion and Bargains
  • Alternative clothing and accessories can be found in the STUFF undercover market (in the old Beanos building running parrallel to Surrey Street Market). Here you will find a range of corsets, fascinators, vintage clothing, printed t-shirts.
  • Timebomb - High Street at End of St Georges Walk - Goth, Emily Strange,Attica etc and really cool staff
  • This is Croydon. There are no quirky clothes shops. Unless you count Time Bomb on St george's Walk, which has evil people in it and everyone who shops there professes to be the owner's friend, which can get annoying.
  • time bomb specialise in alternative, as does elegantly waisted, both on st georges walk, the rest are pretty generic high street crap.
  • natajacks, skate cloths. tk maxx for cheap cloths that r a good brand.
  • Addiscombe charity shops: I have got some very good quality stuff here (especially in Scope, which colour co-ordinates everything)
  • Uni-qlo - In my opinion, probably the only shop in the new Centrale centre worth a look. This has long been a favorite place for very good value, excellent quality, and non-clone clothes. I am quite simply delighted that I don't have to trek to Regent St or Bromley any more. It's upstairs opposite Next, and not so far from TK-Max, which is my other haunt.
  • All the normal chains and department stores and more. I like TK Max - Drummond Centre in the town centre, or by Sainsbury's on Purley Way.

  • Missdemeanour's, Tramms, Church St. Yes, that's my shop but I'm posting on here because I think I have stuff you might like: GunFreeState t-shirts & hoodies, vintage clothes and comics/mags. And I'm quite fit considering how old I am, so come down and say hello.
  • George - supermarket priced clothes, but no need to actually go to ASDA. The only individual store in the country.
  • Time Bomb in St Georges Walk is brilliant for all kinds of alternative clothing. They can also print t-shirts for you, just ask as all the people there are really friendly.
  • Oxfam is cheap and cheerful
  • i get my clothes from forbouys
  • Croydons brilliant for shops; Allders, M&S, Debenhams, Bhs and House of Fraser make up the big stores. Mixed fashion River Island, H&M, Zara, Next, Republic, Levi's, French Connection etc, Ladies - Topshop, New Look, Oasis, Pineapple, Jane Norman, Monsoon, Elle, Mango, Miss Selfridge etc, Mikey, Accesorize, claire's and Angelz etc for Accesories, too many sports shops, Faith, Ravel, Clarks, Egoshego, Sole Trader etc for shoes, Mens fashion Base Menswear, Baron Jon, Moss, Topman loads of independents etc.
  • Natterjacks in st georges walk
  • None, go to Camden
  • Croydon is one great big shopping centre
  • TIME BOMB in st george's walk sells punk, rock, goth and military clothes and jewellery. much cheaper than anywhere else in croydon (or camden too). they do lucky 13, ravenSDL, scary miss mary, band tshirts, cool coffin bags and loads of other stuff that i cant be arsed to mention
  • Jazz menswear in Whitgift Centre(Stone Island, Urban Stone, Prada)
  • stomp(on church street)freespirit,legends,up in smoke(on church street)
  • der int NOOO clothez in croydon i went yestaday n dr woz jack shit, but JD iz da best if u wan sum stuf
  • Not always that great. All high Street places like Topshop, Miss selfridge. I like the big Next they have just built. Zara is not to bad either. Not the best place for clothes tho I dont think. Sutton town centre is probably better!
  • Go charity shopping in Grannyvilles such as Caterham and the like - although not Croydon, it is easy access, and you can get loads of bargains and antiques and stuff. Plus, the folk down there tend to chuck really good stuff out. Bought a 60's original handbag for 50p. Little things like that.
  • Ahh all the high street shops. If you don't want to look like a clone then you can always look in the Trams (used to be called In Shop) they have a couple good clothes shops.
  • fuck all!! legends is tk max
  • tk max
  • Burtons. I'm a Burton's guy.
  • Check the Sonja Centre (top floor of the Whitgift Centre) for the best range of jeans in Croydon. A huge selection of sizes and styles from Levis, Wrangler and Lee, plus some very nice denim shirts (classic Levis and Wrangler western shirts are always available) and jackets. It was established in 1970 (and my parents tell me that the same husband and wife team have always run it), a true Croydon institution.
  • There are no decent clothes shops in croydon. it's croydon afterall, go to covent garden instead
  • burtons
  • Great selection of shops - miss selfridge, new, massive Topshop, Bay Trading, Clobber, Allders, Debenhams, M&S, Etam, DP's etc etc need I say more?
  • TK Maxx, if you want cheap designer stuff.
  • Fancy a pair of trousers for under a tenner,go to clobber, dont worry they dont actually cum apart until the second time u wash them.
  • Top Man, Croydon
  • Personally I wouldn't come here if you wanna buy nice clothes.. THough there's a shop called up in smoke which sells some alright stuff, it's on church street.. Also legends the skate shop in the whitgift center has some ok stuff, if you're that way inclined
  • Madhouse and TK Maxx - OK, I'm cheap, and "nobody will know the difference".
  • Not tk max there are plenty of decent garms stores in thwhitgift centre
  • That FCUK shop is quite cool, but the price tags aren't. Try River Island, that's not a bad little establishment.
  • C& A is no longer there
  • Croydon is shopping city with almost every shop, as long as it is not too posh!
  • Apart from the obvious - Next, Gap, etc., The Warehouse Store opposite what used to be Grants Dept. store is pretty good for cheap stuff: jeans, tops - that sort of thing.
  • The Paramount shop in St. George's Walk (just up from Warehouse) is pretty pricey - but, the sales really are the time to go - lots of bargains to be had everywhere! Some of the more expensive places cut there prices massively to get rid of last year's stock. Look about and you'll find something. Offer cash! Haggle!
  • Very good camping shop in St. George's Walk: Berghaus fleece tops and other bits go at reasonable prices, if not exactly cheap.
  • T.K.Maxx in the Drummond Centre, for bargain end-of-range or seconds in designer labels.
